Weeks 18-19

July 12- 25th

Pregnancy stats...
How far along... 18/19 wks

Size of baby: an avacado/orange

Gender.. Boy!!!

Name: William Joseph Collins

Baby's Movement.. I am pretty sure I have felt one swift kick and a lot of little movements that may be William

What I miss: hmmm still missing an occasional glass of wine, and being comfortable (sleeping, sitting, in the car)... I know this will get worse and that's okay, it's just starting to be more noticable that there actually is a baby in my belly!

Cravings...banana pudding!!!

Symptoms..Little heartburn and indigestion

Big events... My parents came to visit and got to see our house for the first time! :) It was wonderful to have them!!

Best moments... Having my parents here. Also, I have been struggling to find a dress for a wedding coming up. My sister & mom have been amazing shopping for me! After trying 3 dress on and none of them working, my husband took it upon himself to go shopping for me :) He bought me a beautiful pink dress, that I feel like myself in!! What a guy!!

My parents brought me my old basinet, that my dad made for me! The blanket was hand made by my Aunt Shirley for me. I am so glad to have a visual reminder that this little guy is on it's way (if my growing belly wasn't enough :) ).

Weeks 16 & 17

June 28- July 11th

Pregnancy stats...
How far along... 16/17 wks
Size of baby: a lemon/peach
Gender.. Not sure, will find out on July 17th if baby is cooperative ( Sean says girl, I say boy, maybe girl... I really have no Idea.
Baby's Movement..I am not sure maybe felt something here and there, but not really sure.
What I miss: occasional glass of wine, missing it less & less. I did give in & start drinking decaf coffee, it was quite good!
Symptoms..starting to be a little more forgetful, not sure if that's pregnancy or not, but that's what my excuse is :)

Big events... We moved & sold our house!!!!!! We had a ton of help & somehow got all of our things moved!! We are still unpacking, but are loving our new home. I have a better commute to work, Sean is closer to work & we have a baby room :).

My business partner Breann Bailey, MD moved to Richmond. We were so very sad to see her leave, she was is a much esteemed colleague & a wonderful friend. Wishing her the very best & look forward to her returning when her husband finished his residency. In the mean time I think I will be making more shopping trips to Richmond :)

Best moments... Seeing family (Mom Collins, Kurt & Serena)& friends (Adam & Sean) & sharing our exciting news! Ohh I have discovered that I actually do love baths!!!

The move....

New house :)

Unpacking... You can appreciate a little baby belly :)

Installation of chandelier!! Eek, glad I was at work!

Having the chandelier really made it feel more like our home, the flowers were a nice touch too :). Thanks mom & dad!
